The coronavirus outbreak is taking a major toll on our mental health. The ways we work, connect, and relax have all been changed in the wake of this virus. Many of us are struggling as a result. At Renewed Edge, we can help you bounce back with vigor and vitality with hypnotherapy to build resilience.
The Power of Resilience
Resilience refers to the ability to bounce back after emotional stress or trauma. Much like a rubber band returns to its original size and shape after being stretched, resilient people return quickly to their natural baseline after they experience distressing experiences.
When you lack resilience, chronic stress can take a major toll on your mental and physical health. You may struggle with:
- Heartburn and indigestion
- Heart disease
You can build resilience through hypnosis for stress management. At Renewed Edge, our licensed hypnotherapist can help you learn to reframe your experiences and develop greater peace of mind about past experiences. Hypnotherapy for anxiety is a deeply relaxing experience that can induce a calming sensation from the first time you use it.
In one study, researchers used inflammatory markers as well as subjective questions about coping, stress, and resilience to determine the benefits of hypnosis over 12 weeks. At the end of the study, the participants had lower inflammatory markers and had made improvements in a variety of areas, including catastrophic thinking, dietary habits, and pessimistic thinking.
Self hypnosis can give you the coping mechanisms and stress-management tools you need to move beyond the trauma of COVID-19 and embrace a more resilient new life.
The Benefits of Hypnotherapy to Build Resilience
While hypnosis is often portrayed negatively in pop culture, it has a long history in medicine and therapy. Self hypnosis can bring healing and health by transforming your mind and body. With the right techniques and hypnotherapy for anxiety, you can promote resilience in your own life with:
- Deeper, more restful sleep
- Less stress and anxiety
- Natural relaxation
- Fewer gastrointestinal symptoms associated with IBS
- Less chronic pain, such as that associated with fibromyalgia and arthritis
Hypnosis can even help you manage the bad habits that might be undermining your health and efforts to build resiliency, such as smoking or overeating. Habits are deeply ingrained in your subconscious mind, and willpower alone is not necessarily enough to uproot them. With hypnosis, you can learn to address the motivations behind your habits, develop negative associations with the habits, and find more positive ways to cope with your negative feelings.
A Healthier Tomorrow
While the coronavirus has brought major changes to our way of life, hypnosis can help you enjoy a healthier, more positive tomorrow. While the trauma associated with social distancing, COVID-19, and the aftermath are all very real, they are not inevitable.
In the past, survivors of other catastrophes have found that they have experienced profoundly positive changes, including more valued relationships and a greater appreciation of life. Rather than suffering from post-traumatic stress, they experienced something known as post-traumatic growth. Researchers discovered this phenomenon in 1990, but their groundbreaking work laid the foundation for future discoveries in resilience.
Trauma can change the way you perceive yourself or the world, but it does not need to break you down. Through the power of resilience, you can experience post-traumatic growth. Hypnotherapy can help you develop the strength, focus, and awareness you need to move through the difficulties and into a greater sense of health and wellbeing.
